Artists who spin or weave to create their works know it's a long journey from fleece to finished and some encouragement along the way is very welcome. Leanne Butchko is not only a talented artist, but is surrounded by a supporting crew who have a big stake in her work. Rob Wilds recently visited Mistletoe Farm in Franklin to meet Leanne and the creatures who lighten her load just by being themselves.
Rob Wilds has been a part of the Tennessee Crossroads family since 1993. As one of our most frequent producers, and the recipient of several journalism awards throughout his various careers, Rob finds that the best reward for his work is meeting the fascinating people and visiting the interesting places he encounters in his travels. A presence in television, radio and print reporter for more than 20 years, Rob is a teacher, writer, producer and director as well as an actor (with appearances in feature films, television shows and on stage).
